The team at TTC includes experts from a variety of fields such as Psychology, Psychotherapy, Family Therapy, Psychiatry, Relationship Counselling and clinicians trained specifically to work with adults, adolescents, children and families.

The ethos at TTC is to offer non-judgmental empathetic support blended with effective interventions based on the most recent up to date research on best practice in the field. Embedded in this ethos of integrity and compassion, all the clinicians at TTC have a shared approach. It isn’t always easy to step out and ask for help especially if one is unsure of what kind of support they may be looking for so they aim to keep it easy and simple for clients. From the very first point of contact the clinician who answers your call will talk through what it is that you are looking for and think with you what might be the next step. A thorough assessment will be made of the individual or family’s needs which in itself is the beginning of an insight into the situation and the best way forward.

Here’s some indication of the kinds of issues covered:

  • Anxiety

  • Stress
  • Behavioral difficulties in children and adolescents

Be it practical advice on how to manage your family/ parental concerns or figuring out the root cause of these concerns, the therapists at TTC believe that supporting the parents benefits the whole family. With flexible options of working individually, as couples or family sessions the team offers tailored ways to ensure everyone has the support they need.

This flexibility in the need and ways of communication is also extended to children and adolescents. The facilities include a consulting room which has been specifically designed to cater to their different needs.
